Hearing rumours of this floating around £137 on BF and Cyber Monday.
For most people this is the most you will ever need (yes the 3700x/3800x is faster) but still this is a nice budget chip now (the 3950x made this chip a "budget" chip)
Why is power usage on this so high compared to a 3700x which is only 65W?

Any rumour on what the 3600 will float around?

12nm when compared to 7nm fab process.

Performance and price wise I prefer this, it's plenty, but it's just not ideal for an ITX build with low profile coolers. Only reason I'm looking out for good deal on 3700x

Im on the look out for a deal on the 3700x too. Dont need that much power at the moment but it will give me some future-prooofing.
The 2700 is on Amazon for less if you fancy saving yourself £17 and spend 17 minutes applying the out of the box overclock to achieve the same performance.
Delivery cost from here is very high iirc, around £15

Is the reason for this again, its higher power usage (and therefore, higher TDP)?

Won't that push up power consumption and heat output meaning a better cooler and more noise?

They are exactly the same processor. If you apply the overclock to the 2700 yourself then you have basically got an 2700X, which will have the same power draw and thermal output (silicone quality permitting). Many reviewers do slam AMD for this product segmentation, charging more for the same CPU, just with an overclock out of the box.

I was comparing it to the 3700x mate which is 65W

Costs are typically much lower than that(they list them in the support pages) - free delivery is available for this, but that only means it will arrive by Dec 16th.

Yes, there is likely to be more heat coming from the 2700 CPUs as the 3000 Ryzen chips are based on newer technology with one of its benefits being a reduced thermal output.
I found the 3600 is the best power per £ ratio. That's where I drew the line anyway.

Completely - check out the passmark comparrision:
cpubenchmark.net/com…481

3600 is 17% faster overall and 28% faster on a single core, 65w v's 105w and you can get it for about £178 currently (14% more) and a damn sight less picky about the memory it uses.

A 2700X for £155 is not really a deal.

I've honestly no clue how much power it draws, but yes it has a lower TDP. It produces less heat, so a smaller low profile cooler will suffice, even the stock cooler, in a cramped itx case
I was holding out for a 3600, which is best for 1440p 144Hzto match with a Red Devil 5700 XT?. This or the 3600?

No, I have a 5700 XT, I was asking if the 7-2700X is better than the 5-3600 for gaming. Thanks
I'm in the same boat. Both are very similar performance on average, depending upon what you'll do with it. For Pure gaming, go 3600 as it is slightly faster and cooler / cheaper to run, but if you do other 'real' work on a pc, then go for the 8 core 2700x, which is kinda pre-overclocked out of the box. Think of a 2700x as the top performing 2700's at the factory, taken off the assembly line and pre-overclocked and re-badged as 2700x rather than 2700, so it saves mucking about trying to overclock. The Ryzen 5 3600 is a newer 7nm manufacturing process, so it can do more on each clock cycle, but has 6 cores, 12 threads, which is enough for gaming, but if you d ant video or other cpu intensive work, streaming etc, then the extra 2 x cores (4 x threads) will do you proud. In reality there's very little between them, but if you are 90% gaming, as your video card choice would kinda say you are, then perhaps go with the 3600? I hope this helps. It's very hard to choose!!! :-p PS The cooler on the 2700X is a much beefier mobel with RGB Lighting too, if that helps sway it for you?

Yep that is what I thought, its going to be a gaming rig (I will use it for rendering the odd video but not enough to warrant taking those capabilities over gaming), looking for that 3600 deal today but doubt it is going to happen...

Lol, same!! Dont know if they'll give us much more off though? Top cashback are doing 3% at laptops direct, but they want a fiver to deliver so better off with Amazon?
With it being so popular I doubt it will go below £170. The Amazon app deal gives me £10 off £100 spend but I can't see me getting a better deal, hey ho!
